My collection is stored at approximately 62° F (16.7 °C).

What temperature and/or humidity do you store yours?

mine is stored in the house.  Generally will flex between 65 and 72.  However, the closet does not vary as much.  In addition, I am in a dry climate so very low humidity.

I have my bottles in 63-64° F  ( 17.2-17.7 °C ) even temperature the whole year, i think an even temperature and dark place is the most important for storing whisky, preferably below 68° F ( 20 °C )

In the house, on the shelf... usually around 20°C, suitable drinking temp happy humidity at about 40.

What comes in a box is kept in the box until empty. The force stay stronger on the dark side wink

I have shelves for storage in the pantry, temperatures fluctuate but it's usually pretty cool in there.  never below 59 degrees and never above 68 degrees.

Stored only in their own boxes, temp between 19-25 C, low humidity and in a closed cupboard.
